I'm confused about this annual inspection for four hundred dollars? We have to have safety inspection in Texas but there 7.50 a year

This is not a State safety inspection. It is essentially a way to make money. The items are the same ones that the owners manual say should be inspected such as roof, brakes, drain WH etc. All items on list are things I do several times a year and take an hour at best. The dealer wanted 4 hours plus cost of fixing /adjusting anything they found. It all had to be done by aniv date each year or warranty was void.

We did buy the forever warranty and would not do so again. We haven't had any issues in almost 2 years (knock on wood) but we're told the inspection cost was only $100. Not the case with the first year. They wanted to charge double that and tried to tell us there were water heater repairs needed that were not covered. We'll most likely cut our losses and do our own periodic inspections.

What they are telling you is nothing more than a sales pitch for the extended warranty of which they get to keep a huge percentage of the cost as profit, and it will usually have so many loopholes and outs for the warranty provider that its essentially worthless. Flagstaff has no requirement that you pay for some kind of an "inspection" every year for $400. That's a load of Bullcaca.

Ditto, from experience. Buy the FR second year, but keep your money in your pocket instead of the 3rd party aftermarket warranty. Too many loopholes!

I had the lighting wiring in my slide short out due to abrasion on an exposed screw. They said it was a "fastener problem" and that's not covered. Fortunately, FR paid for half the repair, even though their warranty had expired.
